Back to pre-Christmas......

B.C. (before Christmas), I loaded up the day care kids, and ran a few errands. Included in those errands was a trip to the dollar store. As we were walking slowly down the toy aisle, I heard the kids begin an excited chant of "I want that! I want that! I want that".
By the time we were nearing the end of the toys, it had become a quiet, rhythmic monotone murmur of "I want that......I want that......I want that....." In fact, it was so flat and devoid of emotion, it reminded me of the scenes in Finding Nemo where the seagulls have the same repetitive murmur of "Mine, mine, mine, mine" - As if repeating it so much made it meaningless.

Just one of those funny, had-to-be-there moments.
